Prior Infection: First an apology. I misread the Anti-HBc Reactive & thought it said Non-reactive for some reason. This does change things.I t shows you have had Hepatitis B and are most likely immune from the prior exposure. But this is not 100%. The hepatitis B surface Ab will still answer that question. If the surface antibody is positive you are immune, very likely w/NEG NAT/surf Ag.
